GOOOAAAL!!!! A throw is launched in and flicked on by Granqvist to Rigoni, who heads past Marchetti to surely give the hosts the win. Incredible drama. Fourth minute of added time.
Rigoni with the header but it is saved by Marchetti. Great save.
Cana gives away a corner but the visitors clear just as Borriello was lurking.
Anyone's game now though as we enter the first of five minutes of added time.
All Lazio now.
What a finish here. A loose ball breaks to Kozak on the edge and he looks to curl it but he just can’t get enough whip on it.
Olivera delivers the free-kick on the head of Kucka but his header clips the bar as it goes over. Big chance to win it.
A cross finds it way all the way to Cana at the back post but his effort is blocked. Genoa break with Olivera who is clear through – he is hauled back as he charges forward. Lulic is the last man and should be sent off but the referee only gives a yellow.
What a finish here.
Cana won the penalty following some grappling with Borriello.
GOOOAL!!! Mauri takes it. He sends Frey the wrong way to level things up at 2-2. Good spot kick.
Genoa’s defence is getting desperate and Granqvist gives away the free-kick. Mauri clips it in and the referee points to the spot for a foul in the box.
Lazio continue to build momentum but the hosts have remained stout in the defence of their lead.
Lazio have a free-kick in a decent spot down the left and Mauri clips it in but it doesn’t even beat the first man.
Konko follows up his own header to scuff an effort wide from close range with the goal at his mercy.
Genoa respond with a change of their own. Bertolacci is withdrawn for Olivera.
And the substitute has to be replaced - Bruno Pereirinha on after a long delay.
Brocchi is scythed down by Matuzalem as he makes a break forward and we have a long break for the injury – he may not be able to continue.
Rigoni is on for Rossi.
Looks like there is a substitution on the horizon for the hosts as they look to stem the tide. In the meantime, we have a slight hiatus for an injury to Bertolacci but he’ll be okay as it was a nothing tackle.
Floccari gets in behind but his stabbed cross is cleared for a corner. Brocchi whips the corner in but it is cleared to relieve the pressure.
Brocchi on for Ledesma, who has been poor.
Lulic is late on Kucka to offer some respite from what is an onslaught here.
Every Genoa man inside his own half now – what a turnaround.
Lazio flowing forward now but Ledesma wastes a set-piece situation with a horribly over-hit centre.
GOOOAL!! Lulic collects a blocked Ledesma drive and lifts the ball to Floccari, who takes a touch to steady himself before volleying past Frey from close range. Great goal. Game on.
Tremendous save from Marchetti. Borriello with the close range volley but the whistle had already gone for a foul. Great save though.
Genoa having the better of it now.
Almost a wonder-strike from Borriello. Having picked up some space inside the box he elects to scissor kick a difficult dropping ball and, while he doesn’t catch it cleanly, he certainly has Marchetti scurrying to his post as it drops wide.
Lazio are already utilising the wings to better effect this half. Konko lays it back to Gonzalez but his cross is headed clear. Gonzalez then collects a loose ball before losing it and Bertolacci charges forward before shooting from distance. The effort hits his own man though.
Lots more intensity out there from Lazio – they are first to the ball and this could be an interesting second half now.
Mauri shows a decent sleight of feet to work some space on the edge but his shot is blocked – better start from the men from Rome.
Kozák on for the German international.
Back underway in Genoa. The hosts get the game underway. Klose has been replaced following those first-half challenges.
And that's it from the first half.
They make a hash of the set-piece though as Ledesma plays it square to Gonzalez but he gets under the effort and blazes high and wide.
Rossi is late on Mauri right on the edge of the box and Lazio possibly have one last chance to halve the arrears.
Lazio have a corner and Ledesma clips it in but Frey comes to claim amongst almost no pressure.
Ciani is again lax and Borriello almost capitalises on it but the defender just recovers to stab the ball back to the keeper.
There has been a noticeable improvement from Lazio as the half draws to a close.
Konko’s deep cross is just in front of Floccari – that’s more like it from Lazio.
Manfredini is again late on Klose and the German is down injured this time.
The gap between the Lazio midfield and defence needs to be reduced.
Lazio, a side who are challenging at the top of the table, have been so poor this half. All the intensity is coming from the home side – they have had two chances and scored from both.
Manfredini with an awfully timed challenge on Klose down the right – he is lucky not to get booked there. Ledesma’s delivery from the set-piece is abject.
That pretty sums up Lazio thus far – Radu looks to switch the ball but Borriello cuts it out. Ciani elects not to challenge for the ball and instead just hauls the forward down. Poor from Lazio.
Manfredini comes across to clear as Klose is lurking down the right channel. The delivery from the resulting corner is poor.
Cassani has pulled up injured and is to be replaced by Ferronetti.
GOOOAL!! Kucka picks a loose clearance and finds Bertolacci who runs at the Lazio defence. He drops his shoulder before unleashing a drive from 25 yards that leaves Marchetti with no chance. 2-0.
The hosts are having the run of midfield.
Having taken the lead, Genoa are now in the ascendancy. Lazio are ragged.
GOOAL!! Lazio fail to clear the resulting corner and the ball drops to Borriello just outside the six-yard box. He steadies himself with a nice bit of control on his chest before volleying left-footed past Marchetti. What a strike. 1-0.
Bertolacci picks up a loose ball and runs at the defence before finding Kucka square - his shot is well-struck but blocked for a corner.
Konko with his second late tackle of the game and he needs to be careful otherwise he'll soon be in the referee's book.
Kucka has a shot blocked following a lapse ball from Radu.
Floccari wins a decent flick but with very little support the chance has gone.
Both defences are dropping very deep meaning that there is lots of space in between the midfield areas but the passing has yet to be of the required quality meaning that there has been very little action of note.
Ledesma is a little over zealous in his attempts to retrieve the ball as he gives away a free-kick. Genoa sling it into the box but it has too much on it and carries through to Marchetti.
Radu exchanges passes with Lulic before looking for Klose but the ball was too slow, and, the German, knowing he was offside, lets it run and the chance has gone.
A pretty sedate start here with Genoa offering their visitors plenty of respect.
Lazio get the game underway but the hosts are straight on the attack.
